I love mornings and my morning ritual; it’s probably my favorite part of the day. But my second favorite part of the day is the afternoon, which is usually the time I get out of the apartment and head to a local café (or Starbucks) to do a few hours of work. Lately I’ve been trying to get more use out of my heels, and even though they’re certainly dressier than most people dress in my locale, I enjoy that added bit of height and confidence boost heels give. Are you a heels girl?
Have a great weekend!

Before the weather gets obnoxiously hot and humid, I wanted to wear my lobster sweater again (last seen here) while my roommate, Liz, and I checked out a new (to us) downtown coffee shop to spend the afternoon working at. I went for an easy and casual look with boyfriend jeans, wedges and loads of silver jewelry (with a subtle nod to all things nautical with my anchor ring I bought a few years ago).

Nothing is easier to put together than a silky summer dress and a pair of colored heels (with the obligatory denim jacket for those crazy-cold air-conditioned rooms). I played off the green specs in the dress with my cocktail ring and tiger necklace (which, if you’ve followed me for a while, you know I have quite the collection of tiger jewelry).
What do you have going on this weekend? I’m planning on hanging out with new friends and exploring an art festival in the Old Market area of downtown Omaha — oh, and getting some good use out of the pool at our apartment!

While I tend to gravitate toward more structured pieces for the majority of my wardrobe, I will make the occasional exception for something billowy. This blouse has the ideal amount of flow and easiness to it, and the best thing is that it needs nothing more than a simple silhouette (skinny jeans) to complement that ease. It’s certainly not a complex outfit, but sometimes the simplest of outfits are the ones that work the best — especially when you work from home but don’t want to wear pajamas or sweats.

Continuing my orange obsession on this lovely Friday! Seafoam stripes and orange accessories were meant to be paired together, don’t you agree?
This weekend, I’m so excited to participate in Taste of Omaha, a local festival where you are given samples of the best local restaurants. I hope to find a few new gems to try out and explore during lazy summer weekends.
What are you up to this weekend? Have a good one!
